Overview

Building on the success of five previous editions, this new sixth edition continues to present a unified approach to the study of the behavior of structural members and the development of design and failure criteria. The text treats each type of structural member in sufficient detail so that the resulting solutions are directly applicable to real-world problems. New examples for various types of member and a large number of new problems are included. To facilitate the transition from elementary mechanics of materials to advanced topics, a review of the elements of mechanics of materials is presented along with appropriate examples and problems.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This substantially revised and expanded text-reference was last published in 1985. As in previous editions, the blend of analysis, qualified approximations, and judgments based on practical experience is maintained. The topics are divided into three major parts--fundamental concepts, classical topics in advanced mechanics, and selected advanced topics--and each topic is developed from basic principles so that the applicability and limitations of the methods employed are clear.
